Appalachian Farming Systems Research Center (Beaver, West Virginia)

Research programs at AFSRC integrate soil-plant-animal resources to develop knowledge and technology that increases profitability of small-farm agricultural enterprises in the Appalachian region while enhancing soil and water quality and environmental integrity.

The AFSRC conducts research on soil acidity, karst landscape water quality, and nutrient flow at the soil-plant interface in grazed agricultural systems. Additional information is available through the AFSRC website (http://www.ars.usda.gov/main/site_main.htm?modecode=19-32-00-00).
